This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing tliis resource, we liave taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 
We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain fivm automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attributionTht GoogXt "watermark" you see on each file is essential for in forming people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liabili^ can be quite severe.

NOTE BY THE AUTHOR 



TO THE BDinOM OF 1857. 



Im these Tolume^, for the fint time, a complete collection of my poetical 
writings has been made. While it ^ satisfactory to know that these scat- 
tered children of my brain have found a home, I cannot bat regret that I 
have been anable, by reason of illness, to give that attention to their revis* 
ion and arrangement, which respect for the opinions of others and my own 
afterthought and experience demand. 

That there are pieces in this collection which I would ** willingly let die,"* 
I am free to confess. But it is now too late to disown them, and I must 
submit to the inevitable penalty of poetical as well as other sins. There 
are others, intimately connected with the author's life and times, which owe 
their tenacity of vitality to the circumstances under which they were writ- 
ten, and the events by which they were suggested. 

The long poem of Mogg Megone was in a great measure composed in 
early life ; and it is scarcely necessary to say that its subject is not such as 
the writer would have chosen at any subsequent period.

.UlAMflM., 1167. 



PROEM. 



T Lovp. the old melodious Uys 
Which iioftly rm*lt the a^^ through. 

The aongs of SiienAer's golden dajra, 

Arcadiiui Sidney's nilvery lOirase, 
Sprinkling our noon of time with fn^hest morning dew. 

Yet, Tainly in my quiet hours 
To breathe their marvellous notes I try ; 

I feel them, as the leaves and flowers 

In silence feel the dewy showers, 
And drink with gUul still li^w the blessing of the sky. 

The rigor of a frozen clime. 
The harshness of an untaught ear, 

The jarring words w one whose rhymo 

Boat often Labor's hurrietl time. 
Or Duty's rugged march through stonn and strife, are here. 

Of mystic beauty, dreamy grace. 
No rounded art the lack sup^ilies ; 

Unskilled the subtle lines to trace. 

Or softer shades of Nature's fat»e, 
I riew her common forms with unanointed eyes. 

Nor mine the seer-like power to show 
The secrets of the heart and mind ; 

To drop the plummet-line N'low 

Our common w orld of joy and woe, 
A more intense desjiair or brighter ho|ie to find. 

Yet here at least an earnest sense 
Of human right and weal is shown ; 

A hate of tyranny intens»\ 

And hearty in its vehemence. 
As if my brother s pain and som)w were my own. 

O Freedom ? if to me lielong 
Kor miffhty Milton's gift divine. 

Nor Manrells wit and graceful song. 

Still with a lore as deep and strong 
As theirs, I lay, like them, my best gifts on thy shrint I

The •trrai^th to bear hii eril part ; 
And, fthirlded b^ hU rery Vice, 
Kartpn from Cnme by Cowardice. 

Rath starts ^rpct, — with bloodshot eye, 
And lips drawn ti^ht acrow her teeth, 
Showiny^ their lo('k«;d embrace beneath. 
In thr red firvU|(ht : — "Mogg must die ! 
Give nir the knifi? !" — The outlaw tunis, 
Sbu«ldfnijgin hMrtand limb, away, — 
but, fitfully there, the hearth-fire bums. 
And he Mrrs on the wall strange shad- 
own play. 
A lift«Hl arm, a tmnulons blade.. 
Are dimly pirturetl in lixht and 8had<*, 
riungini^down in the darkness. Hark, 
that cry 
Asain — and again — he sees it fiill, — 
That shadowy arm down the lighted wall ! 
He h«*ani quick footsteps — a sha]»e

Tbeduoron its rusted hinges creaks : — 
" Kuth — tiaughter Kuth ! ^ the outlaw

Bat no lounil comrs back, — he is stand-

PART 11. 

T IS morning orer Xorridgewock, — 
On tnv and wigwam, wave and rock. 
Bathnt in the autumnal sun^ihine, stirred 
At intervals by breeze an<l binl, 
Anii wearing all the hues which glow 
Id heaven'^ own fvure and |teHW't liow. 

That glorious picture of the air. 
Which niramer* s light-robeil angel fonns 
Ob the dark ground of fading mtorin;*, 

With pencil dip})ed in sunWantH 
there, — 
And, strvtchtng out, on either hand, 
Cer all that wi<le and unshorn land. 
Till* vm>' of its gomonsness. 
The aching and the dazzled eve 
Beats, gladdened, on the calm blue sky, — 

SJambcn the mighty wiltlemesa ! 
Tile ottk, upon the windy hill, 

Ita dark green burthen upward 



And the tall maple wean with them 
The coronal, which autumn gives, 
The brief, bright sign of ruin near» 
The hectic of a dying year ! 

The hermit priest, who lingers now 

On the Bald Mountain's shrubless brow, 

The gray and thunder>smitten pile 
I Which iiuirks afar the Desert Isle,^ 
j While gazing on the scene below. 

May lialf forget the dreams of home, 
1* hat nightly with hisslumlMTscome, -• 
I Tlie traiKiuil skies of sunny France, 

The |)eaMint's harvest song and dance, 
[ The vinedfiruund the hillNideH wreathing 

The soft airs midst their clusters breath- 
ing. 

The wings which dip])ed, the stars which 

shone 
Within thy bosom, blue rtart>nne ! 
And n)und the Abb«*y's shmiowed wall. 
At morning spring and even-fall. 

Sweet voi(*e.s in the still air singing, — 
The chant of many a holy hymn, — 

The Holfnin Wll of vej»j»ers ringing, — 
And halloweil ton'hlight falling dim 

On pictureil saint and 8«>ntphini ! 
For here )N*neath him lies unrolled, 
Ratlifd deep in moniing's flooil of gold. 
A vision gorgeous as the dream 
Of the beatitied may setin, 
I When, as his (^hurch's legends say. 
Borne upwanl in ecstatic bliss. 

The rapt enthusiast soars away 
Tnto a brighter world than this : 
A mortal's gliniiMie lieyond the pale, — 
tent's liftine of the veil !

Tbc bemlork brooda above its rill, 
Ita cone- like foliage darker still, 

AipuDst the btrch'a graceful stem. 
And the nmgh wmlnnt-bough receives 
fht aQB npoD its crowded leaves. 

Each eolond lake a topai gem , 



Far ea.Htwsnl o*er the lovt-ly l»av,

I'jKm the yellow sands below ; 
And AhiMiting rouml the winding shorrw 

Of narrow ca|»e««, and islea which lie 

Slumltering t«» ot*ean*s lullaby, — 
With birchen iKiat an<l glancing oara, 

The Tt^i nn-n to their fi^ihing go ; 
Whili' from their iilan ting ground is borne 
The trea-Mire of tlie goldt-h corn. 
By laughing girls, whose dark eves glow 
Wild through the loi'ks i^hich oVr them

The wrinkle«l sijuaw, whov toil is lione,

Watching the buskers, with a smile

" Fmr, doQbt, thoaght, life itself, erelong 
Merged in one feeling deep and strong.

A« mortal ami as frail as mine. 
With h(*art, and soul, and mind, and form. 
Knelt nuKlly to a fellow-worm. 

" Fall soon, npoQ that dream of sin. 
An awfVil light came bunting in. 
The shrine was cold at it-hich I knelt. 

The idol of that shrine was gone ; 
A hamMed thing of shame and guilt, 

Oatca«t, and spumed and lone. 
Wrapt in the shadows of my crime, 

^ith withering heart and burning 
brain. 

And tears that fell like fiery rain, 
I paaaed a fearful time. 



There enme a Toke — it checked tne

By words deceired, b^ smiles beguiled, 
Of crime the cheated mstrument, 
Upon our fatal errands went. 

Through campand town and wildemeai 
He tracked his victim ; and, at last, 
Just when the tide of hate had passed, 
And milder thoughts came warm and faatt 
Exulting, at my feet he cast 

The bloody token of succetis. 

" O God ! with what an awful power 

I saw the buried piist uprise. 
And gather, in a single hour. 

Its c^host-like memories ! 
And tlicu I felt — alas ! too late — 
That un<iemoatli the mask of hate. 
That shame and guilt and wrong had 

thrown 
O'er fpelings which they might not own. 

The heart's wild luve hail known no 
change ; 
And still that deep and hidden love. 
With its tirst foiidn«»ss, wept above 

The nctim of its own revenge ! 
Tliere lay the fearful scalp, and there 
The blood was on its ]iHle brown hair 1 
1 thought not of the victim's scorn, 

I thought not of his )»aleful guile. 
My deadly wrong, my out«*ast name. 
The charaotent of sin and shame 
On heart and fort*head <lrawn ; 

I only saw that victim's smile, — 
The stifl, green places where we met, — 
The moonlit branches, dewy wet ; 
I only felt, I only heanl 
The grp«*ting and the iiarting word, — 
The smile, — the embrace, — the tooe^ 

which made 
An Eden of the forest shade. 

"And oh, with what a loathing eTe» 

With what a deadly hate, and aeep^ 
I saw that Indian miinlerer lie

Whkh flammofit the Norridgewock to 

And tells thAt the foe of his flock U nigh. 
He Ustens, sod hears the nuigers come. 
With load hurrah, and jar of drum, 
Ad«1 hurrying feet (for the chase is hot), 
And the nhort, sharp sound of rifle shot. 
And taunt and menace, — answpre<i well 
Bv thff Indians* mocking cry and jrell, — 
The hark of dogs, — the squaws mad 

srreain, — 
The dash of paiidles along the Ktrmm, — 
The whifetlr of sliot as it cuts the leavvs 
(>f the maples around the church's 

earea, — 
An<l the gride of hatchets fiercely 

thrown, 
(Hi wigwam-log and tree and stone. 
Blark with the grime of paint and dust. 
Spotted and streaked with human 

gore, 
A grim and naked head is thrust 

Within the ch«pel-<loor. 
•• H« — Bomazet-n I — In GmVs name say. 
What nran these sounds of bIoo<ly fray If" 
Silent, the Indian {mints hi.s hand 
To where across the echoing glen 
Sweep Harmon's dreaditi ranger-band. 

Ami Moulton with his men. 
•• Where are thy warriors, Bomazeen f 
WTiere are I>e ftouville *• and Castine, 
And where the braves of Sawga's queen ? " 
*' Let mT father find the winter snow 
Whi^h the sun drank up long moons ago ! 
Tnder the fidU of Tacconock, 
The wolres are eating the Xorriiigewwk ; 
Castinc with his wives lies oIom^Iv hid 
Like a fox in the woods of remai{uid ! 
On Sawga's banks the man of war 
Sits in his wigwam like a squaw, — 
8i|iiasdo has fled, and Mogg Megone, 
Sinick by the knife of Sagamore John, 
lies attn and stark and cold as a stone." 

Fearfollj over the Jesuit's face. 

Of a thooaand thoughts, trace after trace. 

Like swift cloud-shadows, each other 



fhie instant, hia fingers grasp his knife. 
For a laat vain strugirie for cherished 

life, - 
The next, he hurls the blade away. 
And kneela at hb altar's foot to pray ; 
Over hia beads hia fingers stray, 
And he kiiars tlie croas, and dills aloud 
On tht Virgin and her Son ; 
Far tanfble thoo^ta his memory crowd 



Of evil seen and done, — 
Of scalps brought home by liis aaTige 

flock 
From Casco and Sawga and Sagadahock 

In the Church's service won. 

No shrift the gloomy savsge brooks, 
As scowling on the priest he looks : 
"Cowesass — cowesass — tawhich wessn

5(y father's heart is the heart of a siiiiaw, 
But mine is so hard that it docs not tnaw ; 
I>et my father ask his God to make 
A dance and a feast for a great saga- 
more. 
When he paddles across the western lake. 
With his dogs and his squaws to the 
spirit's snore. 
"Cowesass — cowesass — tawhich wessa- 

seen ? 
Let my father die like Bomazeen ! " 

Through the chaiH'l's narrow doors. 

And through each window in the walls. 
Round the nrie»t and warrior pours 

The deadly shower of English Imlls. 
1/1W on his cross the Jesuit falls ; 
V/hile at his side the Norridgewock, 
With failing breath, essays to mock 
And menace yet the hate<l foe, — 
Shakes his 8cal}>.trophies to and fro 

Kxultingly before their eyes, — 
Till, cleft and torn by shot'and blow. 

Defiant still, he dies. 

•* So fare all eaters of the frog ! 
Death to the Itebylonish dog ! 

Down with the beast of Rome ! ** 
With shouts like these, around the dead. 
Unconscious on his bloody bed. 

The rangers crowding come. 
Brave men ! the dead priest cannot hear 
The unfeeling taunt, — the brutal jeer ; — 
Spurn — for lie sees ye not — in wr&th, 
Tne symbol of your SaWour's death ; 

Tear from his death -grssp, in yourMl, 
And tramnle, as a thin^ accurMni, 
The cross ne cherishe«l in the dust : 

The dead* man cannot feel ! 

Brutal alike in deed and word. 
With odious heart and hand of strifes 

How like a fiend may man be made,

THE BRIDAL OF PENNACOOK.

Of oomiiur Tengeance mused Castine, 
Of the ^tu cbielUin Bomazeen, 
Who bade for htm the Norridgewocks 
Dig op thtfir bari«d tomahawks 

For firm defence or swift attack ; 
And him whose friendship formed the tie 

Which held the smtd self-exile hack 
From lapdng into savagery ; 
Whoap nrb and tone and kindlv glance 
BecalTed a younger, hanpier (Uy, 
And prompted DK*inor}' s fond i*88ay, 
To bridge the mighty wastii which lay 
Itrtwfen his wild nonie and tliat gray, 
Tall chateaa of his native France, 
Whose chafiel bell, with far-heard din, 
Ushernl hin birth-hour gayly in, 
Knd (H>unted with its solemn toll 
The maasea for his father's soul. 

Hark ! from the foremost of the band 

Suddrnly bursts the Indian yell ; 
For BOW on the very spot tlioy 8tan<] 

Where the Nornd|(fwockstlghtiiig fell. 
Vo wigwam tonoke u curling there ; 
fbe vi*ry earth is s«-on'hed ami Inhiv : 
And they |«u9eanil listen to catch u sound 

Of breathing life, — but there comes 
not one. 
Save the fox's bark and the rabbit's bound ; 
Bot here and there, on the blackened 
ground. 

White houvB are glistening in the 8un. 
And whrre the bouse of praver arov, 
And the holy hymn, at Uayiight's close, 



And the aged priest stood np %r bless 
The children of the wildemeaa. 
There ia naught save aahes sodden and 
dank ; 
And the birchen boats of the Nor- 

ridgewock, 
Tethered to tree and stump and nie> 
Rotting along the river bank I 

Blessed Mar^ ! who is she 
Leaning against that maple-tree f 
The sun upon her face bums hot. 
But the fixed eyelid moveth not ; 
The Miuim'I's chirp is shrill and clear 
Fnmi tin* dry l>ough above her ear ; 
Dojihing frum rxxrk and root its spray, 

(..'lose at her feet the river rushes ; 

The bla<-k bird's wing against her 
bnijihes. 

And Kwnetly through the hazel-bushes 

The robin's mellow music gushes ; — 
God save her ! will she sleep alway f 

Castine hath lient him over the sleeper : 
** Wake, daugliter, — wake ! " — but 

she stirs no limb : 
The eye that looks on him is fixed and 
dim ; 
And the Hl<>ep she is sleeping shall be \io 
de^'jK'r, 
Tiitil the angel's oath is said. 
And the final blast of the trump goes forth 
To the graven of the sea and tue graves 
of earth.

THE BRIDAL OF PENNACOOK.' 



We had been wandering for many da3r9 
Throogh the rough northern countrv. 

We hail seen 
fbe anuet, with its bars of puq>le cloud. 
Like a new heavrn, shine upward from 

theUke 
iH Winnepiarogee ; and had felt 
The siiDriae breexea, mi<Ut the leafy isles 
Which stoop their summer beauty to the

Wbo kid stood with oi upon Mount 

Washington, 
BfT bvo«rn locks raffled by the wind 

whi<!h whirled 
In giuti aroand its shftrp cold pinnacle, 
Who bail joinrd our gay trout-tishing in 

the a tmun s 
Which lare that giant's feet ; whose 

laagh was hwd 
like a bird's carol on the sunrise brreze 
Which swelled our sail amidst the lake's 

grern iidantls. 
Shrank frrmi its harsh, chill breath, and 

▼iidbly drxiope<i 
Like a flower in the frost. So, in that 

(luift inn 
Which Iiiuks from Conway on the moun- 
tains piled 
Hearily agHin^rt the horizon of the north, 
like summer thunder-clouds, we made 

our home : 
And while the mist hung over dripping 

hills. 
And thf cold wind-driren rain -drops all 

day long 
Rrat tht*ir sad music upon roof and pane. 
We rtrore to cliwr our gentle invalid. 

Hi* lawyer in the paunes of the storm 
Wfnt angling down the 8aou, and, re- ' 

turning, 
Rrrountetl his ailrcntures and niishapH ; 
(i*ve us the hi"»ton' of his si'sly clieiitH, 
Ntogling with ludirruusyet apt citations 
> K" barVinrou« law I^tin, }iaHHages 
From liAAk Walton's Angler, swoet and 

fm*h 
A* the rtower-nkirted streamn of StutTonl- 

•hin*. 
Whew, under agr^l trees, the mmthwot 

wind 
Ofaoft June momingM fanne<l the thin, 

white hair 
*.H the «*ge fisher. And, if tnith be told, 
t>ar youthful candidate forsook his ser- 
mon % 
Hi* crvninentarif*^ arti«*h»s an<l cn^eds. 
For the fair |«ge of hiimsn loveline««i, — 
The mivtal (»f young ht^rts, whoM* sa- 

rre«i text 
U niiaic, its illumining sweet smiW. 
He SBXiK the wmgn she lovetl ; and in 

his low, 
tVepi, earnest voice, perited many a ragi' 

»jrt fine* 



iH poetry, — the holiest, tenderest 
Of the M«i bard of Olney, — the sweet 
■otiga, 



Simple and beautifnl as Troth and Na« 

ture, 
Of him whose whitened locks on Bydal 

Mount 
Are lifted yet by morning breezes blowing 
From the green hills, immortal in hislaya. 
And for myself, obedient to her wish, 
( searched our landlord's proiTered li- 
brary, — 
A well-thumbed Bunyan, with its nico 

wood pictures 
Of scaly fiends and angels not unlike 

them, — 
Watts' uniuelodious psalms, — ABtroU 

ogy's 
I^ast home, a musty pile of almanacs, 
And an old chronicle of bortler wara 
And In<lian hi.stor>'. And, as I read 
A story of the marriage of the ( 'hief 
Of Saugus to the dusky Weetamoo, 
Daughter of Pa-sMaconaway, who dwelt 
In the old time ui>on the Merrimack, 
Our fair one, in the playful exeivise 
Of her prerogative, — tfie right divine 
Of youtn and iM'auty, — bade us vendfy 
The Icgoinl, and with reatly pencil 

skotohed 
Its plan and outlines, laughingly as- 

Higiiing 
Toeacli hisivirt, and l»arring our excuses 
With u)>soIute will. So, like the cavaliers 
WhojM' voices still are heard in the Ro- 
mance 
Of silv»T-toiigued Boccaccio, on the banks 
Of .Anio, with soft tales of love liegiiiling 
The ear of langiii<l l)eauty, plague-exiled 
From stately Flon'Ucc, we rehearxetl our 

rhymes 
To thf ir fiiir auditor, and shared by turns 
Her kind uppn>val and her playful cen- 
sure. 

It may Iv that these fragments owe alon^ 
To the fair setting of their circum- 
stances, — 
The as.Mx*iationH of time, scene, and 

audience, — 
Their ]»lace amid the picture* which 

ftU up 
The chamliers of my memory. Yet 1 tnist 
That some, who sigh, while wandering 

in thought. 
Pilgrims of Romance o'er the olden world. 
That i>ur bnvad laml, — our sea- like

Pileil to the chmds, — our riven over

history giyes not to the 



fhe filled coloring of Ti]ne*s tapestry, 
Let Fancy, with her dream-dipped bnuh, 
supply. 

Roof of bark and walls of pine, 
Throoi^ whose chinks the sunbeams 

shine, 
Tracinc many a golden line 

On Uie ample floor within ; 
Wherp, npon that earth-floor stark, 
Imj the gaudy mats of bark. 
With the bear's hitle, rough and dark. 

And the re«l-deer's skin. 

Window-traeery, smsll and slight, 
Wovm of the willow white, 
Lrnt s dimly checkered light. 

And the night-ntsm glimmered down, 
Where the hxlge-fire's heavy smoke. 
Slowly thn>ugh an <>i¥>ning broke. 
In the low roof, ribbed with oak, 

Sheathed with liemlock brown. 

Gloomed behind the changeless shatie, 
Bt the liolenin pine-wood uumIc ; 
Tdroogh the raggi'<i palinade, 

la the o|<>n foreground planted, 
6Iim|Mm came of rowen rowing. 
Stir of leares and wild* flowers blow- 

ii>g. 
jteel-like gleams of water flowing. 
In the sunlight slanted. 

Here the mighty Bashaba 

Held his long-untiueaitioned sway, 

FrMD the White ililK far sway. 

To the great sea's sounding snore ; 
Chief of cnieCs, his regal word 
All the river Sachems heard. 
At his call the war-dance stirred. 

Or was still once more. 

There his mils of chase and war, 

law of wolf and black bear's paw, | 

^Dther'a skin awl eagle's claw, j 

L«y beside his axe and bow ; 
And, adown the ro(»f-^le hung, 
LasBsly on a snake-skm strung, 
la the smoke his scalp-locks swung 

Oiiodj to and fro. 



Nightly down the river goin^ 
Swifter was the hunter's rowing. 
When he saw that lodge-fire glowing 

O'er the waters still and r^ ; 
And the so uaw's dark eye burned brightff^ 
And she drew her blanket tighter, 
As, with quicker step and lighter, 

From that door she fled. 

For that chief had magic skill. 
And a Panisee's dark will. 
Over powers of good and ill, 

Powers which bless and powers which 
ban, — 
Wizard lord of Pennacook, 
Chiefs u{M)n their war-}iath shook. 
When they met the steady look 

Of that wise dark man. 

Tales of him the gray squaw told. 
When the wint<*r night-wind cold 
Pierced her blanket'8 thickest fold. 

And her fire burned low and smaU* 
Till the very ciiild aUni, 
Drew it« Ix'ur-skin ov»»r head, 
Shrinking from the pale lights shed 

On the trembling wall 

All the subtle spirits hiding 
Under earth or wave, sbiding 
In the cavemed nx'k, or riding 

Misty 4*loud8 or morning breeze ; 
Kvery dark intelligi'nce. 
Secret soul, and influence 
Of all thingM which outward sense 

Feels, or hears, or sees, — 

These the wizard's skill confessed. 
At hi.s bidding liannetl or blessed, 
Stonuful woke or lulletl to rest 

Wind an<l cloud, and fire and flood; 
Runietl for him the drifted snow, 
Bsile thn)ugh ice fresh lilies blow. 
And the leaven of summer grow 

Over winter's wood I 

Xot untrue that tale of old ! 
Now, as then, the wise and bold 
All the powers of Nature hold 

Subject to their kingly will ; 
From the wondering crowds ashore^ 
Treading life's wild waters o'er. 
As upon a marble floor. 

Moves the strong man stilL 

Still, to such, life's elements 
With their sterner Isws dispense^

To ffvl, with bird and stream an<l tnn?, 
Thff* jHibes of the same great lieart ; 
But we, from Nature long exiled 
In our cold homes of Art snd

Ori<»ve like the stranger-tended child. 
Which leeks its mother's arms, snd 8ec8 
but feels them not. 

The garden rose may richly bloom

Or dntop in liifauty'M mi<lnight hair, 
In lonelii'r gracf, to Nun and dew

CofiL and dark fell the autumn night. 
Hat the Kaslialia's wigwam glowed with 

lijeht. 
For down fnjm its rwif by green withes ! Steaks of the brown b«»ar fat and large 



On tree-leaves wet with evening dews, 
On gliding water and still canoes. 

The trapper that night on Turee's brook, 
And the weary fisher on Contoocook, 
Saw over the marshes and through the 

]iine. 
And down on the river the dauce-lights 

shine. 

For the Saugus Sachem had come to woo 
The l^haba's daughter Weetamoo, 
And laid at her fatuer's feet that night 
His softest furs an<l wampum white. 

From the Crystal Hills to the far south- 
east 

The river Sagamores came to the fwwt ; 

And chiefs whose homes the sea-Mrinds 
sh(M)k, 

Sat down on the mati of Pennacook. 

Tliey came from SunajH'e's shon* of rock. 
From the snowy sourees of SiKMignnock, 
And from rough C'uos whtnie thick woods

For she had leametl the maxims of her

And frnl hemelf the panlonle«M tlifignice 
Of lore ii fond weakness in the wise

Orer the hoar rime of the Saugns hit In, 
Tile gray and desolate marsh givw green

And the birrb-tree*s trennlons shade fell 

round the Sachem's door. 

Then from tar Pennacook fwilt runners 
came. 
With gift and greeting for the Saugus 
chief ; 
Baeeching htm in the great Sachem's 
naro^, 
Tittt, with the eomiDg of the flower

The sonff of birda, the wi :rm breeze and

Young Weetamoo might greet herlonelj*

And Winnepurkit called lu: chiefs to-

Till, rolling down its wooded banks be-

A broad, clear, mountain stream, the

The hunter leaning on his bow undrawn. 
The tislier lounging on the ]iebbled

Squaws in the clearing dropjiing the

" And what a fate awaits tnee ? — a aadlj

Dragging the slowly lengthening chain

(), ever as the Tempter s|)oke, and feeble 

Nature's fears 
Wrung drop by drop the scalding flow 

of unavailing tears, 
I wTestletl down the evil thoughts And 

strove in silent prayer. 
To feel, O H»*l|KT of the weak ! that 

Thou indeed wert there ! 

I thought of Paul and Silas, within 

rhilippi's rell. 
And how from Peter's sleeping limbs tlie 

prison-Mha<kl(>s fell. 
Till I seeuKtl to hear the trailing of an

And to ftN'l a blessed presence invisible 

to sight. 

Hless the liord for all his merries ! — for 

the |K*are and love I felt. 
Like dew of Harmon's holy hill, upon

When "'Oet ln'hind me, Pjitan!'* was 

the languagp of mv heart,

doubts d**part. 

Slow brr»ke the gray cold morning ; again 

the sunsnine fell, 
Fhvked with the shade of Wr and grate 

within my lonely cell ; 
The hoar-frost melteil on the wall, and 

upward from the street 
Cune careless laugh and idle word, and 

tread of jMutsing feet. 

At length the heavy bolts fell lack, mt 

door was o|i(>n cast. 
And slowly at the sheriffs side, up the 

long street I paf«e<l ; 
I h«>ard the munnur round me, and felt, 

but dan*d not s»»<'. 
How, from ever}' d«K)r and window, tht

And doubt and fi*ar fell on me, shame

The lingering frosts of winter cling.

THE EXILI*:S. 
l(k>0. 

Tur. siw^iman mt Iteftide his iloor 

On- »ultry afternoon, 
Wi:h hiH yonu); wife MUpng at his side 

An «dd and pjodly tune. 

A )eltniriit*r <»f h«'at wan in th«* air ; 

Th»" d-irk ;;reen woody were still ; 
.%od th** skirts of a hea%'y thunder-cloud 

II un^ over the western hill. 

Bla- k. thi« k. and vast arose that cloud 

Attovf the wilderneHS, 
A« »*ni(* dark world from upper air 

Wrre stixtping over this. 

At tim<-« the Mtlemn thunder pealed. 

And all waA iitill again, 
Savr a ]i»v mummr in the air 

iH coming wind and rain. 

Joat a« the first big rainHlrap fell, 
A veary ttrmnger came. 



And stood before the fanner's door. 
With travel soiled and lame. 

Sad seemed he, yet suKtaining hope 

Was in his ouict glance, 
, And iNface, like autunm's moonlight, 
clothed 
His truntjuil countenance. 

A look, like that his Ma.st(T woru 

In Pilate'8 council-liall : 
It told of wrongs, — but of a love 

Meekly forgiving all. 

** Friend I wilt thou give me shelter 
hen» ?" 

The Htninger me<*kly wiid ; 
And, leaning on his oaken staff. 

The goodman's features n?ad. 

** .My life is huntitl, — evil men 

Arc following in my truck ; 
The traces of the tortun'r's whip 

Are on my ag»*d Itack. 

** .\nd much, I fear, *t will jieril thee 

Within thv <loor» to take 
A hunted s«"eker of the Tnith, 

Oppreiwed for con.s«'ien<*e* sake.'* 

O, kindly s|M)ke the giMMlman's wife, — 
"Come in, old man !** ijuoth she, — 

** We will not leave tln'e to the storm. 
Whoever thou mayst be." 

Then came the aginl wanderer in, 

.Villi silent s»t him down ; 
While all witliin gn'w dark as night 

lieneath the 8tt»rm-cloud'H frown. 

Hut while the sud<l<-n lightning's blaze 

Fillcil ever)' cottap' n«M»k, 
.\nd with the jarring tlinnder-roll 

The loosencil ca.sements shook, 

A heavy tramp of horHe>* feet 
Tame sounding up the lane. 

And half a s«-on* of liors**, »»r mon*, 
( ame plunging through the rain. 

"Now, <«oodman Macey, o|M'thvd«K)r, — 
We would not Im* liousf-breakers ; 

A nieful dti**! thou *.st done thi«» day, 
In liarlturing Itanished (Quakers." 

Out looketl the cautious gotNlinan then. 
With much of fear and awe.

One, who living shrank with dread 
From his look, or word, or tread. 
Unto whom her early grave 
Was A» freedom to the slave. 
Moves him at this midnight hour. 
With the dead's unconscious ix>wer i 

Ah, the dead, the unforgot ! 

KnjMi their solemn homes of thought. 

Where the cypress shadows blend 

Darkly over foe and friend. 

Or in love or sad rebuke, 

Iktck upon the living look. 

And the tenderest ones and weakest, 
W^ho their wrongs have borne the meekest^ 
Lifting from those dark, .still places, 
Sweet and sad-rememl)ere<l faces. 
O'er the guilty hearts behind 
An unwitting triumph find. 



VOICES OF FREEDOM. 



TOrsSAiNT I/OUVERTURE." 

T WAS niffht. The tranquil moonlight 

Mil lie 
With which Heaven dreams of Earth, 

shetl ilown 
Its beaut v nn the Indian isle, — 

On brtMd green held and white-walled 

tofin ; 
And inland waffte of rock and woo<l. 
In iTArching sunshine, wild and rude, 
Soae, raellowefl through the silver gleum, 
8olt as the landscape of a dream. 
All molionlesii and dewy wet, 
Ttvc, vine, and flower in shadow met : 
The myrtle with its snowy bloom, 
• 'nMsng the nightshade's solemn 

^ooro, — 
The white eecropia's silver rind 
KeUeved by deeper grren bi>hind, — 
The ormnge with its fruit of gold, — 
Tile lithe lanllinia's verdant fold, — 
Tlie passion-flower, with symbol holy, 
Twining its tendrils long and lowly, — 
Tbe rhexiaa dark, and cassia tall. 
And oroudly riiing over all, 
Tbr iinfliy palm's imperial stem, 
CrofWMd with its lafy ditdem, 



Star-like, beneath whose sombre shade. 
The fierv- winged cucullo played ! 
Yen, — lovrly was thine aspect, then. 

Fair ibiand' of the Western Sea 1 
lavish of lK*auty, even when 
Thy bnites were happier than thy men, 

tor they, at least, were free ! 
Regardless of thy glorious clime. 

Unmindful of thy soil of flowers. 
The toiling negro sigheil, that Time 

No faster sped his hours. 
For, by the dewy moonlight still. 
He fed the weary-turning mill, 
Or bent him in the chill morass. 
To pluck the long and tangleil grass. 
And hear above his scar- worn Iwick 
The heavy slave- whip's fre<juent crack : 
While in his heart one evil thought 
In solitary ma<lness wrought. 
One baleful fire surviving still 

The quenching of the immortal mind, 

One stenier passion of his kind. 
Which even fetters could not kill, — 
The savage hope, to deal, erelong!. 
A vengeance bitterer than his wrong 1 

Hark to that cry ! — long, loud, and shrill. 
From field and forest, rock and hill.

Weu'omf. homr Again, hraye 8»iman ! 

vith thy thouj^btful brow ami gray, 
.^Dtl thr i»M hrruic bpirit of our earlier, 

Iwttt-r tlay, — 
With that fn»iit of calm endurance, on 

wh<»Hc Ht*-a<ly nrrve in vain 
Tniva^l tlif* intn of the prison, smote the 

her>* khufts of )Nun ! 

U thr tyrant'^ brand upon thee 7 Did 
the brtital rravens aim 

To Dukf (iiKl'-H truth thv falsidiood, his 
holii-st w«>rk thy shanne ? 

Whrn, all bl'tiMl.quenched, from the tor- 
ture thf in»n was withdrawn, 

Huw laugh*Mt their evil angel the baffled 
fuoU to M:om ! 

Tkry rhanjji» to wrong the duty which 

Cumi hath written out 
•>n thr gr»*rtt h«-art of humanity, too 

Ifgiblf fur di>ubt ! 
Tkev, th«' l«Hiths<iuie moral l.'|)erH, 

blot4*h*'«i from footsole up to crown, 
Give to nhanit* what (2od hath given unto 

hoQur and renown ! 

Why. that brand is high(*st honor ! — 

tlian itj» trat-es never v<'t 
I'lion old armorial hatcfiments was a 

pnmdt'r blazon s#*t ; 
And thy unUtm genrrations, as they 

tr*'ail our nn'kv strand. 
Shall t»ll with pride the storj' of thfir 

Cat her' S blLiSUKD HAND : 

As the T»niplar home was welcome, bear- 
ing )ia«-k from Syrian wars 

The •«Ar» of Arab lances and of Paynini 
«« \iiiitar% 

The |«illor of thr prison, and the shackle's 
< rimnim '»|Min, 

S> w«- nit^t thtv, so we greet thee, truest 
fn«*nd of (rod and man. 

\{r *afr**ml for the ransom of the dear 1 

Hi^Wmer's grave. 
Thou for his living itrrsence in the bound ! 

and blrr^ling ulave ; j

TliOQ for th<» tme Shechinah, the pm-

For, while the jurist, sitting with the 

slave-whip o'er him swung. 
From the tortured truths of freedom the 

lie of slavery wrung, 
And the solemn priest to Moloch, on 

each God-<lehert«*d shrine. 
Broke the bondman's heart for bread, 

|ioun'd the bondman's blcod for 

wijie, — 

While the multitude in blindness to a 

far-off Saviour knelt, 
And spurntnl, the while, the temple 

wIhth a pn*M*ut Saviour dwelt ; 
Thou iM'ht'ld'^t him in the task-^eld, in 

the pri^iun shadows ilim. 
And thy men^y to the Ixmdman, it waa 

mercy unto liim ! 

In thy lone and long night-watches, skj 

alM>ve anil wave Ijh'Iow, 
Thou didst Irani a higher wisdom than 

the Itabbling sihotdmen know ; 
food's starM and .sih'Uce taught thee, as 

his angels only can. 
That the one koIc sacred thing beneath 

the coi»e of heaven is Man ! 

That he who treads profanely on the 

wrolls of law and creed. 
In the depth of tifxl's great goodness 

may lin»l nien*y in his n«*e»l ; 
But Woe to him who crushes the soUL 

with chain and rotl. 
And henls with lower natures the awful 

form of God ! 

Then lift that manly right-hand, bold 
ploughman of the wavf ! 

Its branded ]vilm shall pn>phesy, •* Sal- 
vation Tt» THK Slavk! " ' 

Hohl up its fin*-wn>ught language, that 
whoNO n*ads may fi*«'l 

His heart swell j»tn>ng within him, hi', 
sinews change to j»t<*el. 

Hold it up befoie our sun»hine, up 

against our Northern air, — 
Ho ! men of MassachuHftts, for the lov« 

of <Jo«l, l<M>k then* ! 
Take it hen<*eforth for vour standard, 

like the Bnice's heart of yore. 
In the dark strife clo^ing n>und ye, ht 

that hand be se<*n U*f(»n' ! 

And the tyrants of the slave-land shall 
tremble at t'aat sign.

1848. 

N"w, joy an<l thanks forevermore \ 
Th^ dpniry night has wellnigh pamed, 

TJ»«» »luml«*rB of the North are o'er. 
The Giant stands erect at last ! 

M'lrp than we hoped in that dark time 
When, taint with watching, few and 
worn, 

Wi» saw no welcome day>star climb 
Th' cold gray jiathway of the mom I 

wrary hours ! O night of years \ 
What itnrma otir darkling |«thway 
•w^pt, 

Wherr, b«>ating back our thronging feara, 
By Faith aluoe oor march r:^ kept. 



How jeered the scoffing crowd behind. 
How mocked before the tyrant train, 

As, one by one, the true and kind 
Fell fainting in our |Mth of pain I 

They diwl, — their brave hearts breaking 
slow, — 

But, fielf-for^getful to the last. 
In wonls of cheer and bugle blow 

Their bn'ath u|K)n the (larkness passed. 

A mighty hoHt, on either hand, 
Stooil waiting for the dawn ot day 

To rnish like reeils our feeble band ; 
The mom has come, — and where are 
they T 

Tn)on after troop their line forsakea ; 

With fieace-white banners waving 
free, 
An<l from our own the glad shout breaks, 

Of Freedom and Fraternity ! 

like mist l)efore the growing light, 
Tlie hostile cohorts melt uwav ; 

Our frowning foeuH'U of the night 
Are brothers at the dawn ot day ! 

As unto these rep«Mitant ones 

We o|>en wide our toil-worn ranks, 

Along our line a mumiur mns 
Of song, and praise, and grateful 
thanks. 

Sound for the onset ! — Blast on blast ? 

Till Slaverv's minions cower and 
quail ; 
One charge of firr shall drive them fast 

Like chaff before our Northem gale I 

prisoners in your house of rain, 
l)\nnb, toiling millions, t)ound and 
sold. 
Look ! stretchtni o'er Southern vale and 
jdain. 
The lA>rd's delivering hand behold I 

Alwve the tyrant's pride of power, 
His iron gates and guarded it-all. 

The bolts which snattered Shinar*^ 
tower 
Hang, smoking, for a fiercer fall. 

Awake ! awnke ! my Fatherland ! 
It is thv Northem light that shines ; 
' This stirring march of Freedom's band 
') The storm-song of thy mountain pines.

WRITTEN ON LEARNING THE TEKICa OF 
THE TREATY WITH MEXICO. 

Across the Stony Mountains, o'er the 
desert's drouth and sand. 

The circles of our empire touch the West- 
ern Ocean's strand ; 

From slumberous Tim()anogo«, to Gila, 
wild and fret*. 

Flowing down from Nuevo-Leon to Cali- 
fornia's Hca ; 

And from the mountains of the East, to 
Santa Rosa's shore, 

Tlie eagles of Mexitli shall beat the air 
no more. 

O Vale of Rio Rravo ! Let thy simple 

children weej» ; 
Close watch ulnrnt their holy fire let maids 

of lVt:o8 ki-ep ; 
l>'t Taos send her cry across Sierra Madre's 

i»ines, 
And Algodones toll her bells amidst her 

com and vineai ; 
For lo ! the ]>ale land-seekers come, with 

eager eyes of gain. 
Wide m^attering, like the biiton herds on 

broad Salaila's plain. 

I>et Sacramento's henlsmen heetl what 

sound the winds bring dovm 
Of footiiteiw on the crisfiing snow, from 

cold Nevada's cn)wn I 
Full hot and fast the Saxon rides, with 

rein of travel sluek. 
And, UMiding o'er his saddle, leaves the 

sunrise at his Uick ; 
By many a lonely river, and gorge of fir 

and pine. 
On many a wintry hill-top, his nightly 

camp-fires shine.

Of salt wastes alternating with valleys 
fat with grain ; 

Of mountains white with winter, looking 
downwanl, cohl, serene. 

On their feet with spring-\ines tangled 
and lap|Mni in softest green ; 

Swift through whose blaek volcanic gates,

1 heard their boaat, and bitter vk*oni. 
Their mockery of the Hebrew'a Lord, 
I Haw their hantU hiit urk ONsail,

blind. 
His unns the massive pillars twined, — 
An eyeless captive, strong with hate. 
He sttxKl then* like an evil Kate.

The kindlings of Eternal hate, — 
The tirst dro{Mi of tliat fiery rain 
Which beats the dark red realm of pain^

Against the crime of Law, which gaw

With which he saw the victim led 

Ik'neath the dark veil which divides 
Ever the living fnmi the dead. 

And N stunt's solemn secret hides. 
The man of prayer can only draw 
New reasons for his blowly law ; 
Ne>w faith in staying Murder's hand 
By murder at that I^w's command ; 
New re%'erence for the gallows-rope. 
As human nature's latest hofic ;

Weep ! <• lontdy and lowly an slnmbcr* 

ing DOW 
The light of her glances, the i>ride of her 

brow, 
Weep ! ~ sadly and long aholl we listen 

in vain 
To hear the soft tonea of her weloom* 

again. 

Give our tears to the dead I For humui* 

ity's cUim 
From its silence and darkness is ever the 

same ; 
The ho|ie of that World whose existence 

IS bliss 
May not stifle the tean of the moumere 

of this. 

For, oh ! if one glance the free«l spirit 

can throw 
On the scene of its troubled probation 

below, 
Than the pride of the marble, the pomp 

of ttie dea<l. 
To that glance will be dearer the tean 

which we shed. 

O, who can forget the mild light of her 

smile. 
Over lips moved with imuic and feeling 

the while — 
The eye's deep enchantment, dark, 

dream-like, and clear, 
In the fflow of its gladness, the shaile dt 

Its tear. 

And the charm of her features, while 

over the whole 
Playe<l the hues of the heart and the 

sunshine of soul, — 
And the tones of her Toice, like the nro« 

sic which seems 
Murmured low in our ears by the Angel 

of dreems I 



But holier and dearer our memories hoM 
Those treasures of feeling, more precious 
} than gold, — 

TfiR circle Is broken, — one eeat is for- j The love and the kindness and pity 

saken. — ^ which gave 

One bud from the tree of our friendship Fresh flowers for the bri«Ul, greea 

is shaken, — j wreaths for the greve ! 

Doe lie«rt from among na no longer\ 



shell thrill 
With joT is our gledneM, or grief in our

The heart ever open to Charitv's chum. 
Unmoved fVom its porpose by oenenre

'^ k^MM * BO present «int we find ; 
Thr white rjunu* gleaniB far behind, 
Rrrmlrd in outline vague, rablime. 
Through teleaoopic mirta of time ! 

^ Truat not in man with paaung breath, 
But in thf» lioril, old Soriiiture aaith ; 
The truth which aavea thou mayst not 

bl.^il 
With ialiie profeaaor, faithleaa friend. 

**S(«Rh thinr own heart What pain-

All ihK in frmif, all flefih ia weak ; 
Bf thou the true man thou doat seek ! 

** Wht-rrnnw with pain thontreadeat, trod 
Tli^ whiumt of the aaiuta of God ! 
To fihiiw tliee wherp their ffet were •<'t, 
The light which led them shineth yet. 

'* The footprinta of the life dirine. 
Which marked their path, remain in 

thin«» ; 
And that grrat Life, tranafuaed in theini, 
A waita thy faith, thy love, thy prayers ! " 

A lemon which I well may heed, 
A word of fitneaa to my need ; 
So from that twilight cool and gray 
BtiU nith a voioe, or aeema to aay. 



We roae, and alowly homeward tnraed. 
While down the west the auuaet burned; 
And, in ita light, hill, wt>o<l, and tide, 
And human forma aeemed glorilied. 

The village homea tranafigunMl atood. 
And puri»l« blutfa, whone belting wood 
At*ruaa tlie waten Icane<l to hold 
The yellow leavea like lampa of gold. 

Then xpake my friend : "Thy worda art

Forever oW, forever ni»w, 
Thej»i* home-seen aplendoni are tlie same 
Which over Edeu'a sumietB cauR*. 

'* To thcae bowed heaven* let wood and

"Henceforth my heart ahall tigfa ao

1652. 

r.AT prace in Europe ! Order reigns 
Tibrr'ii hilU to Ihinube's plains !" 
f h^r kings and prieata ; so say 
ring prophcta of our day. 



Go lay to earth a liatening ear ; 
The tiamp of measured niurchea hear,— 
The rolling of the cannon's wheel. 
The shotUtd niunket's munlerous iieal, 
The night aluriii, tlie sentry's call, 
The (luick-eared spy in hut and 

hall ! 
From Polar sea and tropic fen 
The dying>groans of exiled men ! 
The bolted cell, the galley's chains. 
The hcaifold smoking with itA stains ! '' 
Ortler, — tlie hush of brtNiding hlavea ! 
Peace, — in the dungeon • vault* and 

graves ! 

<) Fialier I of the world-wide net, 

With iiiehhes in all watern Ket, 

Whose fabled keys «if heaven and 

hell 
Bolt lianl the fMitriut's prijum-ivll. 
And o])en wide the bunqui't-hall, 
Wherv kinga and prieifts hold carni- 

ral: 
Weak vassal trickitl in royal guine, 
IW Kaiser with thy lip of li«*H ; 
ltai«e gambler for NaiMHiiin'i* crown, 
liarnacle on his dead D'nowu ! 
Thou, IU)urbon Neapolitan, 
<'rowned scandal, liKithed of God and 

man ; 
And thou, fell Spider of the North ! 
Stretching thy giant fe<*len» fi>rth. 
Within m'hoM* web the freeiiom dies 
Of liatioiiii eaten up like flies I 
S[N>ak, Prince and Kai.MT, Priest and 

Czar ! 
If thiM 1m> Peace, pray wliat in War f 

White Angel of the I^ipl ! unmeet 
That soil accurM»il f«»r thy i»ure feet. 
Never in Slaver)"*!* d«*s«»rt flows 
The fountain of thv charnntl re|(iise ; 
No tyrant's haiitl t\v clmplet weaves 
I Of liiies and of olive-leHves : 
Not with the wicked shalt thou daell. 
Thus Kiiith the Ktenial Oratle ; 
Thy home is with the pure and free ! 
Stem herald of tliy l«etter day, 
IWfure thee, to pn']mre thv way. 
The lUptiM Shotle tif LiU'rty.

And, scfkin^ not for special signs 

Of faviit, is nintent to fall 
Within the pmvi«lence which shines 

Anil nint on all. 

A Ion", thf* Thel*id hermit leane<l 
A! ntwtntinie o'er the sacred wonl. 

Wa« it an anf^d or a fiend 
Who*- voii*e he heard f 

It lirrikf the desert's hnsh of awe, 
.\ humsn utterance, sweet and mild ; 

In I. I'Mikinff up, the hermit saw 
A littlo rhild. 

A rhihl. with wonder-widened eyes, 
^>Vniwc*| anil tmuble<l by the sight 

Of hot, T*A sand«, and brazen skies 
And anchorite. 

' What do^t thon here, poor man ? No 
shaile 
Of cooU gncn douiufi nor gnaiy nor 
wdU 



' Nor com, nor vines.** The hermit 

said * 
' "With God 1 dwell. 

" Alone with Him in this great calm, 

I live nut by the outward senne ; 
My Nile hifl love, niy sheltering pnlm 

II in providence." ' 

The child gazed round him. '* Doei 
Goil live 

Hen' only ! — where the desert's rim 
Is gn*en with corn, at moni and eve, 

/re pray to Him. 

. " My bnithcr tills lieside the Nile 
Hirt little (it'ld : l)encath the leaves 
My sisteni sit and spin the while. 
My mother weave*. 

"And when the millet's ri|>e heada fall, 
And all the l»ean*tield hangs in |km1, 

Mv mother smiles, and says that all 
Are gifts from God. 

'* And when to share our evening meal. 
She calls the strangiT at the do«»r. 

She says (;o«l fills the hands that deal 
Koo<i to the floor." 

Adown the hermit's wasteil cheeks 
Gli»iten<'«l the flow of human tears ; 

••Dear I»nl!" he said, -thy angel 
sjM'aks, 
Thy servant hears." 

Within his arms the child he took. 
And thought of home and life with 
men ; 

And all his pilgrim feet forsook 
Ketumed again. 

The |)almy shadows cool and long. 
The eyes that smileil through lavish 
hH'ks, 

Home*«i craille-h%'mn and harvest-mng, 
And bleat of flocks. 

"O child : " he said, ••thou teachest DM 
There i"< no pla«-e when* GimI is m)t ; 

That love will make, where'er it lie, 
A holy spot." 

He rose from off the desert sand. 
And, ]t*aTiing on his staff of thorn. 

Went, with the young child, hand* in 
hand. 
Like night with mom.

THE DREAai OF HO NONO.

kn^ tbrensh Uw centnriei, felt the beat 
Of Krwdon't march in Cromwell's 
heart. 

He knrv the iwthii the worthies held, 
Whrrv Kii^Umrs himt and wiMutit tmtl ; 

And, lingering, druik the springs that 
wrllwl 
R«*neath tho touch of Milton's rod. 

N'l wild rnthusiast of the right, 
S<*lf-|M>is(-d and clrar, he nliowed alway 

Th" o<Mdiii*iM of his northern night. 
The ri|ii* repose of autumn's day. 

II i< <te(M wiTc slow, yet forwanl still 
He iin'sMil where othtrrs fiaubed or 
Uilnl ; 

Tho i-aIiii<itarelonibwith constant will, — 
The restleMk meteor llasheti and iialtNl ! 

Skillful in its subtlest wile, he know 
Ami owni-<l thi' highfr endA of Law ; 

Kiill rose ntaj«'^ti«: on his vifw 

The awful Shape the schoolman saw. 

IltT home the heart of (to<l ; her voice 
The chtiral haniK>iii«-s whereby 

Tlie ^toTH, through all their spheres, re- 
juice. 
The rhythmic rule of earth and sky ! 

Wr naw his great powers misappHM 
To |H»(»r ambitions ; yet, through alt, 

Wi* saw him take the weaker Hidi\ 
And right the wronged, and fn-c the 
thrall. 

Now, looking oVr the frozen North, 
For one likf him in woni anil act. 

To i-all hrr old, free sjrtrit forth. 

And give h<*r (aith the life of 
fait, — 

To br««k her party bonds of shame, 
An<l lalior with the zeal of him 

To makf* th«* Dfmocratic name 
Of Librity the synon}-:ni% - 

Wi* sweep the land from hill to straml. 
We setfk the strong, the wim*, the 
bmve, 

And, sail of heart, return to stand 
In aili*uce by a new.maile grave ! 

There, where hU brerty hills of home 
Look out upon his tail -white seasi 



The sounds of winds and waten oome, 
And shuiN* themselves to words like 
these : 

" Why, murmuring, mourn that he^ 
who»e |M>wcr 

Was lent to Turty over-long, 
Heanl the still uhihiirr at the hour 

He set hiji foot on Tarty wrong f 

"The human lifp that closed so well 
No Ia|M<* of folly now can stain : 

Th«* li|»H whcnc»* KpMHiom's protest fell 
No meaner thought can now profane. 

** Mightier than living voice his grave 
That lofty iin>t»'st utters o'er ; 

Thn>ugh rouniig wiml and smiting wave 
It H)M'aks his liute of wrong onea 
more. 

" Men of the North * your weak regret 
Is wasted hen* ; ariw and iiay 

To fn'cchim and tn him your oebt.

Ah me ! we doubt the iihining ikies. 

Seen through our aluulown of oflKUce, 
And drown with our i»oor childinh 
cried 
The cnidlL'-hynin of kindly Providence. 

And Mill wi* li)ve the evil raufie. 

And of till* just ctToct romiiUin : 
We ttfid u\nm liff'H broken lawn. 
And munnur At uur eelf-intlii'tiHl {Miin ; 

We turn nn from the light, and find 
(hir HiNMrtral shaiyeH U^fure us 
thn>wn. 
Art they who leave the nun Whind 
Walk in the Hhailows of themselves 
alone. 

And Hoarce hy will or xtrength of ours 

We net «mr far«»!i to the day ; 
Weak, wavering, blind, the Ktemal 
TowrrM 
Alone ran turn u» from ounelvea away. 

( >ur weaknejM \h the Htrt^ngth of tiin. 

But luw mu!«t neetisft lie stronger far, 
<>utrea«-hing all and gathering in 
The erring spirit and the wandering star. 

A Vuii'e grown with the growing years ; 
K^rth. luHliiiig down her bitter cry. 
liook.H u|)waM from her graven, and 
hean, 
** The Renunvction and the life am I." 

O liore Divine ! — whose constant 

Shines on the eves that will not Hei', 
And w:iiu to MesH us, while we dream 
Thou leave^it us because we turn from 
thee ! 

All souls that straggle and aspire, 

All hearts »f prayer by thee an* lit ; 
And, dim or clear, thy tongues of fire 
On dusky tribes and twilight centuries 
sit. 

Nor huunda, nor clime, nor creeil thou 
know'st, 
Wi<le as our neeil thy favors fall : 
The white wings of the' Holy (thost 
tt»jn, seen or unseen, o'er the heads of 
all. 

O Beauty, old yet erw new : •* 
Kurohl Voioe, and Inward Word, 



The liOgos of the Greek and Jew, 
The old sphere-music which the Samian 
heard ! 

Truth which the sage and prophet 

MIW, 

Lung sought without, but found 
within. 
The I^w of liove lievond all law. 
The Life o'erfluodiug mortal death and 
sin ! 

Shine on us with the light which 
glowiil

Who Kiiw tbe Darkni'.sM nvertlowe<l 
And drowned by tides of everlasting

The I'htiral praiw, the chanted proyers 

From lui^M by angeln ntmng, 
Th** hunteii Tanieron's mountain airs. 

The hyniUM that Luther sung ! 

Yet, jnrring not the heavenly notes. 

The miunds of earth are heanl, 
A« thp»ugh the o|ien minster Hoats 

The song of breeze and binl ! 
N'lt 1»-M the wonder of the sky I 

That iUi^ii*.i bliwm below ; 
Til** brofkk sings on, though loud and 
high 

Th«> oloutly organs blow ! 

An«l, if the tender ear be jarreil 

That, Imply, hears by turns 
Thf Mintly harp of 01nt*y*s liard, 

The pi^toral {Miw of Hums, 
Kg diacoid man His perfect |ilan 

Who gava them both a tongoe ; 



For he who sings the love of man 
The love of God hath sung ! 

To-dav be eTenr fault forgiven 

or him in whom we ioy ! 
We take, with thanks, thf gold of HesTen 

And leave the earth's alloy. 
Be ouni his mu^ic as of spring, 

His sweetness as of flowers, 
The songs the banl hinihelf might ting 

In holier ears than ours. 

Sweet airs of love and home, the hum 

< >f h(»um'hold niclo<li*'s 
Come Kinging, as the robins come 

To Mng in d*>or-yanl tn'«»s. 
And, heart to hitirt, two nations lean* 

No rival wn*uths to twine, 
But blending in et«-mal green 

The holly and the pine 1

Only, at times, a smoke- wreath 

With the drifting cloud -rack joini^ -^

Drearily blows the north*wind 
From thf land of ice and snow ;

And hcavv the liands that row. 

And with one foot on the water. 

Ami one uj>on the shore, 
Thf .Vngel of Shallow gives warning 

That dav shall lie no more. 

Is it the clang of wild-geeae F 

Is it the ln4lian*» yell. 
That lends to the voice of the north*

The titnes of a far-off bell f 

The voyageur Mnib^s as he listens 
Tit the s«iund that grows aiM<-f :

No talc of on.-hanls ri|ie and rare. 

Wild as the fniit<( he seonied to till, 
Thew vale4 the idle Indian tPMl ; 

Nor knew the glail, rreutive skill, — 
The joy of him who tuiU with God. 

O Painter of the fruits and flowers ! 

We thank th<*e for thy wine design 
When-by the>e human haniU of ourn 

In Nature's garden work with thine. 

And thanks that from our ilailv need 
The joy uf Kimple faith is lorn ; 

That he who smite» the summer weed, 
Mav trust thee for the autumn com. 

Oive fools their goM, ami knaves their 
jiower ; 

I>et fortune's bubbles rise and fall ; 
Who HOWS a tielil, or trains a fltiwer. 

Or plants a tree, is more than all. 

For he who blcMes most is blest ; 

Anil t'iod snd man shall own his worth 
Who toiN to leave as his beijuest 

An aiided beauty to the earth. 

Anil, soon or Inte, to all that tow. 
The time of harvest shall In? given ; 

The doner shall bloom, the fruit sbaQ 
grow, 
If not on earth, at last in heaven

IWheld the old and ipiiet town ;

Flapped their whita wings of myiteiy
